Each practice day of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs release an official injury report leading up to the next game. The Chiefs will travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV a week from this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

Neither team practiced on Wednesday, but provided estimated injury reports as if they had... sort of a virtual injury report.

Kansas City Chiefs

  • Did not practice: Offensive tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles)
  • Limited practice: Running backs Le’Veon Bell (knee) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip), cornerbacks Rashad Fenton (foot) and L’Jarius Sneed (concussion), linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (ankle) offensive linemen Mike Remmers (groin) and Andrew Wylie (ankle) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf).
  • Full practice: Quarterback Patrick Mahomes (toe)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Did not practice: Linebackers Lavonte David (hamstring) and Jason Pierre-Paul (knee), safeties Jordan Whitehead (shoulder/knee) and Antoine Winfield Jr. (ankle) and wide receiver Antonio Brown (knee).
  • Limited practice: Wide receiver Mike Evans (knee) and nose tackle Vita Vea (ankle).
  • Full practice: Wide receiver Chris Godwin (hip/quad).

Notes:

  • Fisher’s status is not a surprise; he is expected to miss the Super Bowl with a torn Achilles tendon.
  • Bell did not practice last Thursday and Friday. Gay didn’t practice at all last week. Both were inactive for Sunday’s game. It is a good sign the Chiefs believe they would be able to practice in some way.
  • Edwards-Helaire, Fenton and Watkins were listed with the same injuries, limited in practice last week and then were listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. Only Watkins was actually held out of the game. Their presence on this list likely suggests only that they are continuing to receive treatment — and the team wants to give them some rest.
  • Sneed is in the concussion protocol.
  • Before Fisher left Sunday’s game, Wylie missed a few snaps — and then returned. At one position or another, Remmers played every snap. There is no indication that either of their injuries are serious.
  • Mahomes appears to be continuing to receive treatment for his toe injury. During Sunday’s game, he wore a carbon-fiber insert in his shoe to protect it. While his mobility appeared to be somewhat degraded, he still played effectively.
